Second-tier Settlement Regeneration and Revitalisation: The Role of the Built Environment

Author Published Date Read Publication

This literature review analyses articles on the regeneration and revitalisation of New Zealand's 'second-tier' settlements or small towns.

It’s part of the ‘Regenerating for Success’ research programme funded by the ‘Building Better Homes, Towns and Cities’ National Science Challenge. The focus is on understanding the reasons and impacts of decline in these towns, particularly from economic and demographic perspectives. Such decline can have negative social effects and damage the built environment. Addressing this often needs significant capital investment in properties. The review considers research from various countries, exploring urban and regional decline, strategies small towns use for sustainability, and the success and failures of these strategies. The study delves into property-led regeneration, public facility development, financial incentives for attracting residents, and the role of social capital in driving change.
